"Rep. Davis works very hard to strengthen criminal and civil penalties and has always supported legislation that would aid law enforcement's ability to protect our communities and do their job," stated Heath Wester, President of TMPA.
HOUSTON - Three-term State Representative Sarah Davis announced today that she has received the Texas Municipal Police Association's Political Action Committee (TMPA PAC) endorsement for the 2016 primary election.
"I will continue to ensure that the voice of Texas law enforcement can be heard in the legislature and that officers are enabled to protect and serve. I have authored, passed, and continuously supported pro-law enforcement legislation since my first term as an elected official," says Davis.
TMPA was founded in 1950 to protect the interests of peace officers and law enforcement officials. The TMPA PAC contributes to the campaigns of those that support efforts to pass legislation supporting positive conditions for law enforcement and positive criminal justice legislation, while also opposing bills that would overly limit or endanger officers, allow unscrupulous fundraising on behalf of fallen officers, and diminish civil service protections.
"Representative Davis works very hard to strengthen criminal and civil penalties and has always supported legislation that would aid law enforcement's ability to protect our communities and do their job," stated Heath Wester, President of TMPA.
Sarah Davis has served in the Texas House of Representative since 2011, representing West University Place, Bellaire, River Oaks, Braeswood Place, Meyerland, Southside Place, parts of Montrose, and the Texas Medical Center. She currently serves on the Appropriations, Calendars, Public Health, and General Investigating and Ethics Committees, and Chairs the Appropriations Sub-committee on Budget Transparency and Reform for the 84th Texas Legislative Session. She was recently named to the House Select Committee on Mental Health.
